Liverpool and Manchester City played a Premier League classic in the Eastlands last week.

Jurgen Klopp’s side held their Premier League title rivals in a fascinating 2-2 draw at the Etihad.

And excellent for the neutrals, both sides going all out again on Saturday night at Wembley.

Liverpool take on Pep Guardiola in an FA Cup semi-final tomorrow.

Both sides reached the Champions League semi-finals in midweek, with the Reds beating Benfica and City pushing past Atletico Madrid.

The Anfield club had a bigger cushion from the first leg and so Klopp had the luxury of resting some big-name players like Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Fabinho midweek, despite the first two coming on as substitutes.

However, City were only one goal ahead and Guardiola had to name his best eleven away at Atleti.

Here’s what Merson predicted about tomorrow’s FA Cup clash Sportkeeda: “City had a really tough game against Atletico Madrid to be fair. They had to travel this week and it was also a very physical game. Having rested Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Fabinho in the Champions League, Liverpool are almost certain to score goals this weekend. Prognosis: Manchester City – Liverpool 1:2.”

Is he right?

Well he was last week.

Merson predicted a 2-2 draw between Liverpool and City last Sunday and as such his claim must be taken seriously here.

And honestly, it has a certain value.

There’s no doubt Liverpool have fresher players at their disposal and only time will tell how great the advantage is.

If Klopp’s side win, they will face either Chelsea or Crystal Palace in the final of the competition and move one step closer to a potential quadruple.
